>tfw so busy programming I've been ignoring friends, gf, and haven't jacked off in weeks.
It's fun, just don't become a sperg. Plumbers and electricians don't piss their youth away after-hours, neither should you. Get that dat fat paycheck and live it up. Hobbies are for fags, get a job and get your dick wet.
Programming isn't like that though. Pipes are pipes and wires are wires, so plumbers and electrician can just kinda learn the skill and refresh every few years.
Depending on the language/ecosystem you're programming in stuff changes so fast you can't keep up if it isn't your hobby too
I make $100k as a JS dev, the bar of entry is on the floor. Learn the fundamentals, get a job, then see if you want to dick around with OSS or spend that $$$ on fat asses and rich people drugs with your free time.
How long did it take you to be good enough at JS to be able to get a job?
I'm gitting good at html/css before I move onto JS.
I have another talent that will make me a lot of money, I could be a millionaire by now and i'm only 20, but I need to make money to move out of this shitty town I'm in before I can do that.
But getting to the point where you can build things you want takes so long.
I like the idea but fuck. And I hate the side of society that pretends they live it like a genius would.

Fucking kill me.
